SAGE TEMPURA [VEGAN, GLUTEN-FREE]
.8 ounces sage leaves
1/2 cup, plus 2 tablespoons rice flour
1/2 cup cold sparkling water
1 ice cube
Oil, as needed to fry
Wash and dry the sage leaves well and place them in the refrigerator. Prepare a thick batter by mixing the rice flour with the sparkling water and finally, adding the ice cube (do not mix too much, it should not be perfectly homogeneous).
In a small skillet, heat the oil. Dip the leaves of sage in the batter and cover them evenly and fry them a few at a time until they are crunchy.
Remove with a strainer, let them dry on absorbent paper, and serve immediately after salting to taste.
